Working with State and Territory Governments

As a current declared provider for Queensland Health, Vanguard Health is skilled in the use of the QCVMS to effectively manage vaccine inventory and supply chains across the identified regional and remote areas of Queensland.

BHP Partnership

In June 2020, Vanguard Health facilitated temporary COVID-19 testing centres in Moranbah and Bowen under the BHP Vital Resources Fund. This was a private-public partnership with Vanguard Health managing service delivery on behalf of BHP and the Mackay Hospital and Health service.

The Vanguard Health team implemented, managed and provided staffing for two stand-alone, fixed testing sites as well as mobile outreach COVID-19 testing services for the nearby communities of Clermont, Dysart, Middlemount and Collinsville.

The services provided free COVID-19 testing to the general public and facilitated referrals to local providers for post-test result treatment and/or management.

In June 2021, the Moranbah Centre transitioned to providing vaccinations to those eligible under the Department of Health guidelines. The Vanguard Health/BHP clinic made a significant impact on the health of locals and increased the vaccination rates in the Moranbah community and surrounding areas.
